Rob Dabney started a lifelong obsession with motorcycles at the age of 15 when he purchased his first bike – a 1982 Honda MB5. Through his 20’s and 30’s he competed in off-road desert races, including the Baja 250, 500 and 1000. Eventually, his proclivity for exploration led him to dual sport and adventure riding. Rob’s never-ending quest to discover what’s around the next bend has taken him on Adventures in Mexico, Africa, Europe, and throughout the American West. As a moto journalist, he enjoys inspiring others to seek adventure across horizons both near and far.

  1. Great read! I’m somewhat new to off-road riding and have picked a lot of bad habits along the way. Can’t really say that my riding buddies are the best teachers either lol….Definitely will check out this class!

  2. For almost $1,500 less you can get excellent big adventure bike training at Jimmy Lewis’s place in Pahrump NV. Jimmy is the real deal” Dakar podium racer who coaches you personally in Death Valley.

    • Hi Martin. Jimmy Lewis Racing is another respectable off-road school and Jimmy’s racing credentials are second to none. However, the two weekend training programs have some differences that are reflected in the price. RawHyde’s pricing includes a three nights stay (Fri,Sat,Sun) with all meals and beverages included. With JLR, you need to stay at a hotel and only lunch and dinner on Saturday are included. Rawhyde Ranch is 120-acre property with purpose-built obstacles and terrain for students to train on. With JLR, most of the training occurs on nearby open desert land. That being said, the cost difference between the two is actually $795 not $1500, and once you factor in the additional cost of of 3 nights in a hotel, meals and drinks, the prices are comparable.

      • Indeed Rob, the Rawhide 2 days costs $800 more. I don’t know where I got the $1500 number from. I only needed two nights in a hotel for Jimmy’s two day course, plus one meal on the Friday; the other meals were included too. The hotel added $200 to the cost. So the Rawhide experience is about $500 to $600 more, depending on how much you decide to pay for the hotel. I think I’ll put the money towards my next weekend at the Ritz Carlton in Laguna. … or maybe a new iPhone for Christmas. Actually, I might put it towards a Rawhide course. See how my Scottish logic can make me feel good about spending gobs of cash on a terrible habit 😉

  3. Could you possibly email me the first picture on page 2? The 800 going off the jump? That’s a great picture of me and rarely get pictures like that. Thanks again. Hope Bill is enjoying his new found skills.
